I'm just wondering if anyone can offer any tips on taking pictures in rainforests.
If there is bright sunlight on greens it is helpful to have a polarizing filter to cut down on glare.
LOL@ bugspray - I'm not going into the depths of a jungle! :)

Manda, I live a few minutes drive from the National Botanical Gardens and there is a rainforest section in there that I would like to take a few piccies of. I also love Minnamurra Rainforest. Haven't been there in a couple of years, but would like to pay another visit sometime soon.
Get some really good quality color film. Hint: It's in the refrigerated section of the photo store. It's kept cool and ment to be used and processed in a short amount of time, but the color is exceptional.
my photo store guys put malt liquor in "the refrigerated" section.

When you find out let me know. I live not all that far from some very interesting rainforest but my attempts at photographing it have ranged from mediocre to downright terrible. For some reason I find the contrast very hard to handle.
